The end of history... in Australian universities

Undergraduate history degrees in Australia fail to teach fundamental aspects of Australia's history and how Australian liberal democracy came to be. Instead, they offer a range of disconnected subjects on narrow themes and issues focusing on imperialism, popular culture, film studies, and ethnic/race history.

This report contains the results of a systematic review of the 739 history subjects offered across 34 Australian tertiary institutions in 2014, including 34 history programs and 10 separate ancient history programs.
